Softsoap Blushing Bouquet Moisturizing Body Wash

My shower has become an oasis in my house. I’ve done a complete turnaround when it comes to using body washes and now welcome them instead of being afraid of them! That means I get to recommend the two new Softsoap Limited Edition Moisturizing Body Washes that I was sent and have been enjoying myself.

Softsoap Limited Edition Moisturizing Body Wash

Softsoap Limited Edition Moisturizing Body Wash

Softsoap came out with these two new fragrances just for summer. As a matter of fact they’ll only be available until September 2017 at Walmart. That means you need to hurry and pick some up.

Softsoap Eternal Bloom Body Wash

Softsoap Eternal Bloom Body Wash

My personal favorite is Eternal Bloom since it’s a Pear and Apple fragrance which I find delicious to experience.

Softsoap Blushing Bouquet Body Wash

Softsoap Blushing Bouquet Body Wash

Softsoap Blushing Bouquet Body Wash has what they call a May Blossom fragrance so if you love spring flowers you’re going to go wild with this one.

Both body washes are moisturizing and have lovely suds. You’ll feel revitalized when you emerge from your Softsoap shower, enough that you might not even regret Monday mornings!  —  Marcia

Feeling fresh with Farmhouse Fresh Body Wash!

Farmhouse Fresh Rainbow Road Body Wash

Farmhouse Fresh Rainbow Road Body Wash

I have been in love with Farmhouse Fresh Shea Butter Creams forever and now three of their best-selling scents are available in Body Wash ($18)! First, let’s talk scents. There’s Fluffy Bunny, which is a southern mint julep with a hint of lavender; Pink Moon, which is spun sugar with licorice blossom; and Rainbow Road, the one I was sent to test, which is white Bartlett pear with coconut. (I adore Rainbow Road so much I have a beautiful Farmhouse Fresh Rainbow Road Shea Butter Cream that I just keep repurchasing because it goes so well with my sink, ha!)

Layering scents is the best, so lathering up with Rainbow Road Body Wash in the shower or as a bubble bath then slathering up with Rainbow Road Body Lotion afterward is a heavenly experience.  The coconut base is rich and deep, and the fruity Bartlett pear is fresh and clean. Together it makes for an amazing scent that is great to catch a whiff of all day long.

Besides smelling terrific, the Body Wash has tons of skin loving ingredients, including aloe, vitamin E, chamomile, arnica Montana flower, and green tea. It lathers up nicely and leaves my skin feeling clean yet soft and hydrated, with the barest hint of scent…which I then always solidify by adding that extra layer of Farmhouse Fresh Body Lotion (or Body Oil…the Clementine Body Oil and Honey-Magnolia Body Oil are especially nice). The Body Wash is 95% natural, vegan, paraben and sulfate-free.  Great stuff!!

There isn’t one single product from Farmhouse Fresh that I haven’t developed an instant passion for – I mean, come on, this is the line that actually convinced my blog partner Marcia to try body products!!! The Body Washes are terrific and well worth checking out. You can find them in top destination spas, resorts, and retailers across the US, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Middle East, as well as online at farmhousefreshgoods.com.  – Lisa

Cleaning up with Good Earth Beauty (and a giveaway)

logo-good-earth-beauty

You’ve read about Good Earth Beauty several times on Beauty Info Zone. This is a brand that we are always happy to receive for articles and even happier to use. The Good Earth Beauty site is one that sells brands that are both natural and organic and in addition they’ve created their own brand which has all that goodness. Today we have a few bath and body products to share with you and also a giveaway.

MARCIA is using SHOWER WHIP

Shower Whip is an exfoliating whip that is also a soap. It’s available in 5 scrumptious fragrances: Flower Cart, Pink Lemonade, Chocolate Amour, Coconut Lime, and Lavender Vanilla.

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip in Flower Cart

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip in Flower Cart

They are available in 12 oz tubs and all contain natural ingredients. I was sent a smaller size to test out. What I’ve found is that it’s gentle enough for both my face and body.

Ingredients:

Organic RAW Shea Butter, Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Vegetable Stearic Acid, Vegetable Glycerin, Powdered Volcanic Ash, Vitamin E, Grapeseed Oil, Natural fragrance and essential oils.

Flower Cart is the one I have and the one that our giveaway winner will be receiving. The Good Earth Beauty description says it all: “Flower Cart Scent Description – Filled with the delightful and perfectly balanced aromas of blooming tulips, heavenly frangipani, purple hyacinth, exotic orchid and sweet lily of the valley.”

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip

The granules in the whip are very subtle which I think is best for my skin. I want to add moisture to my skin, not remove it with harshness. It washes off well with either my hands or a wash cloth leaving a subtle scent behind. This isn’t a sugar scrub or a salt scrub, instead I believe the granules are from the powdered volcanic ash. Since it contains shea butter along with oils it’s a good moisturizing scrub that only strips away the dead skin and leaves behind softness.

LISA is using STRAWBERRY MARGARITA BODY WASH and STRAWBERRY LIP SCRUBGood Earth Beauty

This is one of those times I really wish our blog had a ‘scratch and sniff’ feature. The super scrumptious strawberry scent for both the Strawberry Margarita Body Wash ($18) and the Strawberry Lip Scrub ($8.25) is out of this world. These can be purchased separately, or – even better – together. The 8 0z. bottle of body wash and a 1 oz. jar of lip scrub set goes for just $20, a really terrific value.

Good Earth Beauty Strawberry Margarita Body WashThe Strawberry Margarita Body Wash is a very hydrating wash that scrubs up to a soft foam. It has some great ingredients, including organic milk and honey, that make it a very soothing soap that works for sensitive skin. The scent is a combination of fresh lime and ripe strawberry, along with just a hint of lemon. I am not kidding when I say that it smells INCREDIBLY delicious. It isn’t sugary sweet like some strawberry fragrances.  It’s more of a grown up take – I guess maybe that’s good since it’s modeled after an alcoholic drink – yet it will still take you back to your childhood and soft summer days picking ripe, juicy strawberries.  Good Earth Beauty Strawberry Lip ScrubGood Earth Beauty inside Strawberry Lip ScrubAnother mouth-watering scent can be found in the Strawberry Lip Scrub. It smells and tastes so darn good (the taste I am sure thanks to the sugar that puts the scrub into the product). A tiny scoop of the sugary scrub with a bit of water makes for a delicious exfoliating treatment for lips that leaves them plump and perfect. So yummy I really can’t get enough. All of Good Earth Beauty products have no parabens, pesticides, petroleum, propylene glycol, phthalates, sulfates, or artificial colors, and they are handmade with love in the USA.

 

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: Good Earth Beauty is offering their Shower Whip in Flower Cart along with the Strawberry Lip Scrub to one US BIZ subscriber. This giveaway is open through 3/13/17 at 11:59 p.m. EST. If our comment section closes please email us your comment to [email protected] and label it Good Earth.

Dove Shower Foam

Dove Shower Foam

It’s not every day that I keep a balloon in my shower but Dove’s new Shower Foam is so light and airy that it deserves to share with a helium balloon. Dove Shower Foam won’t wear down my balloon because it’s as fluffy and delicate as can be.

Dove Deep Moisture Shower Foam

But don’t get me wrong when I say delicate because this is heavy duty when it comes to cleansing. There are 4 versions of the new Dove Shower Foam: Deep Moisture, Shea Butter, Cool Moisture, and Sensitive Skin.

I was sent the Deep Moisture Foaming Body Wash to test out. Dove tells us that it helps skin feel clean and moisturized with this gently cleansing and deeply* nourishing shower foam. All of the foaming body washes contain NutriumMoisture™ to nourish deep into the surface layers of your skin.

Spread the love with FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set

There are lots of ways to spread some love and one of my favorite ways is with FarmHouse Fresh. I always think of this company as the one that got Marcia to cross over to the dark side of body products!!  I couldn’t get her interested until I insisted she try FarmHouse Fresh, and now we have to arm wrestle for every product they send us to test. But don’t worry, we arm wrestle with love in our hearts!!  sample

I believe Marcia told me that the Whoopie! scent from FarmHouse Fresh is yummy deliciousness in a bottle. If you haven’t smelled this before, you are missing a real treat – FHF says it’s an ‘irresistibly delicious buttercream aroma reminiscent of the home baked Whoopie pies made famous by farmers of yesterday who would shout with joy, “Whoopie!” when they found the heavenly desserts in their lunch pails.”

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set

Right now, FarmHouse Fresh has a fantastic gift set of Whoopie! goodness available, which I think is a perfect V-Day gift for a friend – or, of course, for yourself.  The Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set ($54) comes with four fabulous Whoopie! items:

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Shea Butter Body Wash

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Shea Butter Body Wash

1.  Full size Whoopie! Body Cream:  I love this body cream. The scent is soft but noticeable. In fact, I probably look a little weird when I wear this because I keep stealing a sniff of my arm every so often. Ingredients include Shea and cocoa butters, jojoba seed oil, soybean oil, aloe and vitamins A and E.  This 90% natural, vegan and gluten free body cream leaves skin incredible soft, and it calms irritated skin.

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Shea Butter Hand Cream

2. Travel size Whoopie! Shea Butter Hand Cream:  I actually keep a tube of this 90% natural, vegan, and gluten-free hand cream at my work desk and people will stop by just to ask for a squeeze of the white velvet cake-scented goodness. Not only does Whoopie! Shea Butter Hand Cream smell magically delicious, it is a heavenly moisturizer for dry skin and cuticles. Packed inside the cute light pink tube are shea and cocoa butters plus Vitamin E saturated Jojoba and Soybean oils for tackling the most problematic dry skin. The travel size is perfect for keeping in your purse and for taking on your adventures.

3.  Whoopie! Cream Body Wash: This is a delight. The body wash has aloe, vitamin E, sodium PCA, plus a bunch of extracts like chamomile, arnica flower, and green tea. It smells fantastic, cleans beautifully, and plumps up skin with tons of hydration. This 95% natural body wash is in a travel-friendly 3.3 oz bottle.

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Soy Blend Candle

4.  Whoopie! Travel Candle: it is amazing how useful this candle is! I just went on a three day business trip and the hotel I stayed in was fine…but the room smelled stale and just…not like home. I burned this lovely soy-based candle and was immediately less homesick. The 1.7 oz. candle has 15 to 20 hours of burn time.

If you need a great V-Day gift for your mom or your girlfriend or just for you, I highly recommend this wonderful gift set. And unlike the namesake buttercream cake, this luscious hand cream won’t add inches to your waistline.

Be sure to check out this lovely (and still practical!) gift set.  – Lisa

Beauty items to stock up on! Bargains for Meijer Fall Beauty Week

L'Oreal Root Cover Up and Yes to Carrots Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion

I have been loving Facebook lately because of all the awesome ‘back to school’ photos. I don’t care how old you are, there is something magical about this time of year…new beginnings, new friends, and even better – new beauty products! Fall is the perfect time to finish up the products you got for summer and replenish your stash. I’ve partnered with Meijer in anticipation of their Fall Beauty Week that starts September 11th and here are four items to stock up on that are worth the extra closet and drawer space.

Dove Men CareDove Deep Moisture Hydrating Body Wash

1.Body wash. I’ve been using Dove Body Wash forever, so I am happy to see that these will be on sale at Meijer during Fall Beauty Week. If the men in your life are like mine, they resist body wash in favor of bar soap…but I think the Dove Clean Comfort will change their minds. This is an excellent multi-purpose soap that works for body and face, and it has a refreshing outdoorsy scent that isn’t overwhelming.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste
2. Toothpaste. We all need toothpaste and there are so many options out there (and so many on sale next week!), but I hope you will try my favorite, Colgate Optic White Platinum. I am totally stocking up on this – I prefer a paste over a gel, and this one makes teeth visibly whiter in just three days.Yes to Carrots Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion

3.  Body lotion. Lotion is a year round must-have and I know I panic when I don’t have back up bottles. I am loving the Yes to Coconut Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion because it seems perfect in every sort of weather – it’s light, so it feels great even in hot and sticky weather. It’s super hydrating, so it’s perfect for dry winter skin.  t’s also so nice to have a spray lotion, which makes application easy and convenient. This was even a 2014 Allure Best of Beauty Winner.

L'Oreal Root Cover Up
4.  Root cover up. Gals who color their hair have a deep understanding of the nightmare that begins with the dreaded last spray of root cover up. I always have three bottles of this on hand…any less and I start to panic. The L’Oreal Root Cover Up is perfect for instantly touching up roots, and the money saved by stretching out time between hair appointments is incredible. Stock up while this is on sale!!

So many of my favorite items are on sale next week that I have a whole other post with skin care recommendations. These four items are the ones to buy multiples of for the upcoming winter – take advantage of the wonderful prices on these fantastic products during Fall Beauty Week at Meijer!  – Lisa
